Up the lane

Barrow Island

This bucolic scene could easily be in the remoter parts of Hertfordshire, but in fact it’s down at the southern tip of Barrow Island, within a short distance of the docks. And any temptation to regard this as an ancient scene forgotten by time should be instantly suppressed: get up close and the lane has the jizz of an old railway track bed. This has been an area of heavy industry within fairly recent memory.

But nature will reclaim its own, and we’d better get used to that idea if we want to thrive as a species. Meanwhile, just look at all those brambles, and there’s lots more where they came from. Think of the crumbles and pies in a couple of months time, and the blackberry vodka to warm me up in the winter!
